om-shanti-prana asked: I've been playing a few years and i want to get more serious about it. I'm thinking of upgrading to a tenor for the sound because it would be bigger and more comfortable to play. I've played a cordoba concert so far, what brand do you suggest?

It really depends on your budget. How much do you wish to spend?

warmhugs001 asked: Do you consider Kohala a good ukulele brand for beginners?

Absolutely. The key to a good ukulele is how it is set up. I recommend http://www.ukerepublic.com/ as they do a lot of fine tuning before shipping even the cheapest ukulele.

fondlemyvag asked: I have a lot of trouble strumming my ukulele. I know that you use your index finger nail and tip part to strum, but it always hurts and gets caught on the strings. And no, I'm not strumming it too deep. I try and do it as lightly as possible

Don’t use the tip of your nail. Brush the flat part of your nail over the strings and then back up with the flesh of your finger. That should help.

duygu73 asked: i'd like to learn to play ukulele, is it so difficult?

No, it’s easy to learn, just difficult to master. :-)

lunarfossil asked: Hi! I apologize if you've already been asked this before, but I just recently got a Cordoba Concert ukulele... it came with a soft case, but I want to get a nice case for traveling as I backpack. I found one that costs upwards of $130 and is specifically made for travel and getting banged around, but that's ridiculous considering I paid $80 for the uke, tuner, and case. Do you have any recommendations? It would *REALLY* help me out! Thanks so much!! I appreciate your time <3 (:

You can get hard cases for a lot less:

This is good enough for most protection uses: http://www.amazon.com/Gearlux-Concert-Ukulele-Hardshell-Case/dp/B009MBNDUC/

This is a true hardshell: http://www.amazon.com/Oscar-Schmidt-Washburn-UC3-Hardshell/dp/B001ROZT8G/

What I do is use a Dakine Skateboard back pack and just use the skateboard straps to strap a softshell ukulele case to the back. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004X52QSW/

I hope that helps!
